Then, cd into your cloned repository directory, checkout the branch you wish to build, and run something like:
#navigate# navigate to your cloned repository cd ~/demo/integrated-genome-browser/ #checkout# check out the branch you wish to build git checkout igb_8_4 #Not# Not strictly required, but# we suggest cleaning up any Removes untracked files afterfollowing checkingcheckout out# of a new branch git clean -d -f #Use# maven to build the Build project, instructing it to skip running all unit tests to(saves save time.) mvn clean install -D skipTests=true
Note that the first time you do this,
mvn will retrieve dependencies for IGB from external data sources. This will take some time, but you'll only have to do it once.
